 with three mesh icons and three default adhoc icons. Not sure yet, how/if
 we can do better here, suggestions welcome.

 the default set to Ad-hoc. AIUI the XO-1 mesh mode is not interoperable
 with any other device because it's
 [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Mesh_Network_Details#Standards_Compliance based
 on an obsolete draft of IEEE 802.11s], so let's make it a conscious choice
 of deployers (or users) to enable mesh support. If IEEE 802.11s ever
 becomes a standard (it's still in the draft phase) and devices supporting
 the standard become widespread we can reconsider the default.

 Were any gconf switches added? I have two XO-1s here with OLPC build 850,
 is there a way for me to use them to test the new adhoc behaviour?
